Major update : Go openings (joseki)

A major update just occured, finished FICGS Go games (chess & poker as well) are now analyzed by the server that gives the name of each known joseki [the first 2 moves at the moment] played in each corner, sometimes it also gives the way it should be played...

See an example at the bottom of this page :

Finished games are not analyzed in real time, but this update opens new perspectives to see one day a function to search games by joseki.

Please do not hesitate to comment this update or to report any bug you may see.

.. in Go discussions forum

There is a helpful discussion on that subject in the "Go discussions" forum :

Indeed it is not so easy to make the difference with some Fuseki to describe the first moves. Thinking about that.

Isn't there a Go proverb that says when a player studies joseski, he loses two stones in playing strength?

True, true... but it may attract a few players more via Google :)

Also true, and we do need more Go players!
